Sadly found out from Cliff that the rears are different ET size they are ET27 which is for an M3 fitment, so will have to do number of things to get the bloody thing to fit,

1 Change the size of the tire to 235 (but zero rim protection and harsh on pot holes ) or 245
2 Roll the rear arches to make more room

So looks like this wont be don't this side of this year and its October now, :(( :((

Save up the funds for tires and roll arching here we come :d

Sam also didn't mention that his wheels are not 9 and 8j, they're 8.5 and 9.5j with rear M3 ET27 fitment in 19" :shock:

Look at the net found this thread on http://www.archenemy.co.uk


E46 3 series – M3 rims on Non M3s, both the 18×9 et26 and 19×9.5 et27 M3 wheels can be fitted. The rear arch is flared out approx 8mm and you need to use a 235 tyre (picture with 255 & 265) The fronts go straight on being the same spec as the std rims.

Image

So looking at it needs to flare out the rear arches and place 235 on the rear rims

New mod bought for the 330ci

Sprint Booster
Image

How Sprint Boosters Works
Sprint Booster modifies the signal between the accelerator pedal and the electronic throttle body making your car's throttle respond faster to your foot.
This modified signal forces the throttle body to open 'more' than the stock signal at a given pedal position. In effect, the time it takes your gas pedal to go from idle-to-full-throttle is reduced and your pedal actually achieves a full throttle response 25% sooner than the stock or factory configuration.

Image

By making the throttle respond faster with your sprintbooster, you will feel as though your car has more muscle than it really does! This is especially evident in the low to mid rpm range where most cars spend their time on the street.



Easy To Install Too
As a Plug-N-Play app to your car, Sprint Boosters require no mechanical tools or know-how. Simply locate and remove the harness connector on the accelerator pedal, plug the Sprint Booster between the pedal and the harness connector and you're essentially done. Here's more instructions on Installing your Sprint Booster.



Free Shipping Within The Continental US
Plus, sprintbooster sales.com offers Free Shipping to any address within the lower 48 States. (International, Hawaii, Alaska, and territories outside the Continental US, receives a discounted rate, but unfortunately, it's not free.



Put The 'Fun' Back Into Your Daily Drive.
Sprint Booster is most effective throttle enhancer in the low to mid rpm range, which is where most 'street' cars are driven on a daily basis making your car more responsive and thus more 'fun'!




Sprint Booster V3 Features

Each mode (SPORT – RACE) comes with 9 steps-program so the driver can choose the one that suits his driving style. Each program adjusts the pedal response by 3-6% so it can be fully adjustable and customized by each driver.
3 Acceleration modes :
• Off mode - Sprint Booster is deactivated and the response of the car has the factory settings. (The LED of the Selector switch is OFF. )
• Sport mode - Sprint Booster provides improved response up to 30%. (The LED of the selector switch in Sport mode is Green.)
• Race mode - Sprint Booster provides improved response up to 60%. (The LED of the selector switch in Race mode is Red.)

Pedal Lock mode provides extra protection against unauthorized vehicle use. The driver can deactivate the acceleration ability of the vehicle when it's stationary through a 3 digit PIN. When Pedal lock is enabled the acceleration gets disabled and the vehicle stays on idle until you enter the correct PIN

Valet mode limits the acceleration of the vehicle by 55 % - 65% - 75% (comes in 3 selectable levels). It is activated/deactivated through a 3 digit PIN. By limiting the acceleration there will be a significant reduce in vehicle's performance (Power and Torque).

Compact size allows the driver to place the selector switch anywhere on the dashboard with the use of the double sided tape.

Lasting Memory. Sprint Booster also offers the option to the driver to completely remove the switch from the device. In this case the device will work with the last settings stored in memory. For example , if the driver disconnects the selector switch while in SPORT-5 (SPORT mode- Acceleration program 5), the device will keep as default the program SPORT-5.
